iPhone 12 Lineup: Which Model Should You Buy?

Apple released the iPhone 12 with three new options — the iPhone 12 mini, Pro, and Max. If you are currently deciding whether to buy a new iPhone, get an upgrade, and level up your Apple experience, well, you are in the right place. Going to the malls to try the actual products that are displayed by Apple authorized resellers can be very risky, especially with the growing cases of COVID here in the Philippines. To avoid that risk, we are going to help you choose which model suits your taste and fits your needs from the newly launched iPhone 12 series without going out of your respective homes.


Learn about their sizes.


iPhone 12 size comparison


Here’s a quick overview in terms of physical size: iPhone 12 is just the same as the iPhone 12 Pro though it is a bit heavier since it is made of stainless steel. While the mini is the smaller version of the iPhone 12. The Pro Max is bigger than the Pro Model but made with the same material. If you want a size large enough to be grabbed by your palm, you can choose between iPhone 12 and mini. If you’re looking for upgraded features, choose the Pro or the Pro Max (if you prefer a bigger screen size).

Here’s a quick run-through in terms of memory size: The iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 come in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage sizes while iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max have three storage capacities — 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.

Battery life


Depending on the activity, the battery life of each model differs. Tom’s Guide (part of Future US Inc., an international media group and leading digital publisher) made a battery test for all iPhone 12 models. They surfed the web non-stop at 150 nits of screen brightness, searching for new sites every 30 seconds until the battery drained. Below are the results of their battery test:


Battery life (hrs: mins)

Battery size (mAh)

iPhone 12 Mini (5G)


2,227 mAh

iPhone 12 (5G)


2,815 mAh

iPhone 12 Pro (5G)


2,815 mAh

iPhone 12 Pro Max (5G)


3,687 mAh


If you are someone who just loves to do calls and texts plus a little bit of music, you can go with iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Mini. On the other hand, if you are someone who watches movies or TV series, and does a lot of gaming on the side, iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max suit you best.




All of the iPhone 12 models come in an A14 bionic chip and support a 5G Network. Just keep in mind that there are more things that you might want to consider before you purchase an iPhone 12. There is more to know like the camera, screen resolution, etc.
